A four bedroom house on 8.72ac at KiIlsallaghan - 18km from Dublin and 10 minutes from Swords and Ashbourne - is back on the market after being withdrawn from auction recently.

Approached by a tree-lined avenue the house is set in mature trees and gardens. The accommodation includes a drawing room, a dining-room, utility and a kitchen/breakfast room with a range of fitted wall and floor units.

There are four good size bedrooms, with the master ensuite, and a family bathroom.

The gardens are sheltered by mature trees, while the outbuildings comprise of three stables and a lean-to barn.

The land has extensive road frontage on two roads with a main entrance and agricultural entrance.

Currently under grass the top quality limestone land is all in one block and laid out in a number of paddocks bound by stud fencing and automatically watered. The lands would be suitable for all types of agricultural use and would be ideal as a hobby equestrian farm.

Robert Ganly of Ganly Walters opened the bidding when he accepted a bid of €400,000 but with no further bids forthcoming the property was withdrawn. It has attracted lively interest since and, according to the auctioneer, is under active negotiation with a guide of €475,000.
